# How Many Ounces Does a Standard Letter Weigh?

## Answer

A standard letter will weigh under one ounce. Any letter than it under one ounce in weight will only require one first class stamp for postage. Typically, about 5 standard pages can fit in a small envelope and still have the weight come to less than an ounce. If you suspect a letter is more than one ounce, you should take it to the post office to be weighed to make sure it is mailed with the correct amount of postage.
